Not sure if I ever had it, but now working from home, I need it.  Below is my device manager.

Hi:

 

The product specs for your notebook indicate that it does not come with built in bluetooth networking.

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04936059

 

That is why you don't see a bluetooth device manager category.

 

The easiest thing to do to add bluetooth to your notebook, would be to purchase a USB bluetooth adapter.

 

I use this one for example...

 

https://www.amazon.com/Kinivo-USB-Bluetooth-4-0-Compatible/dp/B007Q45EF4

 

Your other option would be to replace the internal Realtek RTL8188EE non-bluetooth card with the RTL8723BE combination wifi/bluetooth card...

 

Realtek RTL8723BE 802.11bgn 1×1 + BT 4 LE Combo Adapter    HP part # 753077-001

 

You can find plenty of those for sale on eBay.  Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure...
